Paving to start Aug. 30 on Highway 2 and Highway 9 east of Crookston

BEMIDJI, Minn. - Paving will begin Aug. 30 on U.S. Highway 2 and State Highway 9 as work progresses on the realignment and reconstruction of Highway 2 east of Crookston.

Motorists are reminded of a reduced speed limit of 50 miles per hour in the Highway 2 work zone and watch for flagging operations on Highway 9.

In addition, motorists are cautioned to watch for several areas of gravel on Highway 2 near the Polk County Road 9 and Polk County Road 214 intersections.

The realignment and reconstruction of this portion of Highway 2 will provide stability and strength for the underlying road bed and provide users with a safer, smoother ride.

The entire project is expected to be complete by the end of September.
